Before now I made half-hearted attempts to avoid spoilers. For B2W2, I managed all right, until the ROMs were leaked and people started uploading videos to YouTube. Since it's going to be a worldwide release this time, however, I won't need to worry about that, and so I'll probably have a gawk now and again as Nintendo/GameFreak release information. Corocoro scans and so on.

I never avoid spoilers.
I won't be able to stop myself so why try. x]

Being a moderator on a Pokemon forum, it will be hard to avoid spoilers, though I'll probably keep busy enough offline for me to not really absorb many spoilers before the release of the games.

I won't actively be seeking out or actively avoiding spoilers.

I won't be able to control myself. I'll check out the XY-forum several times/day in search of new information.

I'm fine with spoilers as long as they're not too detailed, for example I'm happy to know the Gym Leader types but I would want their teams to be a surprise.

I stayed far away from the Pokemon side of the internet starting from B2W2's Japanese release until I had beaten the game, and I was so happy I did. Now, it will be even easier, since the games will be coming out at the same time! All I need to do is avoid the internet until after I beat the game, since anything that is revealed via official sources is fair game to me.

This for me as well. I can't exactly hide away from PC enough to avoid any spoilers (though I did pretty well for B2/W2 enough that I knew nothing about those games). Though it's not like I'll have the time to actively search for information, so I'll just absorb whatever I can get from wherever I have the time for.

And I know my friends on Twitter will be talking all about the information.

Spoilers have never really ruined an experience for me. The more I learn, the more excited I get, really.

I won't be actively seeking out spoilers, but if I run across them I'll be more than happy to absorb the information.

To avoid spoilers, I avoid anything Pokemon ever. I only look at the catchable Pokemon in the new game, to think about my first team. Usually, though, my team sucks the first time...

I won't be able to resist checking out all the new Pokemon. The few Pokemon we've seen so far look awesome!

As for story plot well, even I do spoil that for myself, Pokemon hasn't been known to make a suspenseful, deep, and engaging plot lines. =P Other than that I hope to at least contain myself from looking at the regional cities.

I LOVED (sorry, love....present tense) Ruby/Sapphire as I was about eight and didn't read spoilers or anything like that, I enjoyed Diamond/Pearl seen as I heard very little about it, HeartGold/Soulsilver was great because somehow I didnt realize they existed 'till the July after they were released, but i disliked B/W for the reason i knew everything possible about them, so I shall be giving up Pokecommunity between September and October so I don't see spoilers

I won't hide from the spoilers, but then again, they won't be as bad this time since there is a worldwide release in October. No Japanese spoilers then (or not as much).

Huh, I thought I already replied to this thread!

Anyway, I want to try to avoid spoilers this time... even though I now I inevitably won't be able to. However, I know that almost all of the spoilers come from japan having the games released there first, so they most likely won't have enough details about the games to spoil it for me/do anything other than increase the hype for the games and my excitement, so I should be good! :D

I would want to know every bit of information of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y by the time they're released. I don't mind spoilers, in fact... I like them. :3

'Cause I'll enjoy these games no matter what, they're so amazing that I'd just want to keep playing, even if I already know about what's going to happen next. xD

Since October 2013 is the international release, which is more of a shocker, I will spoil myself like I did with BW and B2W2... :3

Nope, Im going to learn all the game info I can! That's part of the fun for me and what's unique about Gen 6 for me is that it's the very first that I will keep up with it from the very point of announcement to game release. I dont want to miss a single minute.

I don't mind being spoiled, in fact I'd rather find out the stats, moves, evolutions, etc, ahead of time. That's part of the pre-release fun. Gotta have something to look at. XD

I think I will try to completely avoid spoilers, I sort of blew up Black/White for me, and B2/W2 for when I get it, if I do, so to make this as fun as possible, I'm staying away from everything xD

I'll also look at all the new Pokémons stats and movepools. It'll help me decide on my team.

Knowing everything about the game doesn't really change my experience with the game. I would read the entire guides before playing pokemon games when I was like 6 anyway.

That's my main reason, and I also like to know if I can get a cool evolved Pokémon without having to trade.

I won't look much at the new storyline, besides the main characters and antagonists, but I plan on looking on the new pokemon, so I can decide a team, like others.

I'm gonna embrace the spoilers so as to get myself more and more excited for the release, then see how it goes when I actually play. I thought I had Black and White all planned out for my first runthrough, but I ended up veering way off course because some Pokemon turned out to be more useful than I thought (like Blitzle, Sawk, and Petilil).
